Canon Digital Camera Prices in India 2014

Canon is one of those brands that very well known to everyone who is familiar with the term camera. Be it the high-end professional cameras, beginner compact cameras, camcorders or anything else, Canon has a made its mark in every possible segment. The company started with a small laboratory which was set up in a decent apartment room and was focused towards making superior-quality cameras. It was set up in 1933 in the Roppongi area in Tokyo. Though the company’s actual birth can be said to be in the year 1937 with the founding of Precision Optical Instruments Laboratory by Takeshi Mitarai, Goro Yoshida, Saburo Uchida and Takeo Maeda. The laboratory was the room of young people, where they began working on realising their dreams of producing high-quality Japanese camera; such was the beginning of Canon. In the early years, the company was not capable enough of producing its own optical glasses and the first of cameras were combined with Nikkor lenses from the Nikon Corporation (or the then-known Nippon Kogaku K.K.). After the prolonged hard work and much striving for success, the association was named after the Buddhist goddess of mercy as Kwanon. In 1935, there came Hansa Canon which was though a copy of Leica’s design but was Japan’s first 35mm focal-plane shutter camera and then the name Canon came in the frame. After a few years, in 1940 the company brought out Japan’s first indirect X-ray camera and later in 1947, changed its name to Canon Camera Co., Inc. In the year 1955, Canon started its operations globally and set up its first international branch office in New York City. Following which, the company also set up a sole European Distributor named Canon Europa in Geneva, Switzerland in 1957. The very next year, it came up with field zoom lens, used for television broadcasting following which it introduced the Canonflex and Reflex Zoom 8 which was the world’s first movie camera to incorporate a zoom lens. From there on started the launch of new Canon products every 1-2 years with Canon 7, a Rangefinder camera by Canon launched in 1961 followed by the introduction of Canola 130 which was the first Japanese built 10-key calculator and posed to be a huge improvement over the British electronic calculator, launched 2 years earlier and came with a Sumlock Anita Mark 8 unit. In 1965, the company came up with Canon Pellix, single lens reflex camera which which was coupled with a semi-transparent stationary mirror and because of the diversification of the product line of the Canon, it changed its name to Canon Inc. in 1969. In 1971, there came Canon F-1 which was the top notch SLR camera along with the FD lens range later in 1976, the company brought out AE-1 which is till date regarded as the world’s first SLR camera to come with a built-in microcomputer. From the year 1979 to 1985, the company came up with many different types of printers with finally an introduction of BJ-80, the world’s first inkjet printer to use bubble jet technology. Canon introduced the EOS 5 in 1992 which was the first camera to have an eye-controlled AF and the company’s first digital camera, the PowerShot 600 while in 1995, it introduced an SLR lens with internal image stabilization. So, a lot of efforts, innovation and time was taken by the Kwanon of 1933 to become the Canon of 2013, to move from the then most popular Hansa Canon to today’s famous Canon EOS-M Mirrorless Kit 18-55mm Digital Camera Black, which happens to be one of the most popular Canon digital camera. A digital camera, or as it is commonly called digicam, is a camera which while taking videos or still photographs, records them on an electronic image sensor, for example, Canon PowerShot G1X Mark II Point & Shoot Digital Camera Black, Canon PowerShot N100 Point & Shoot Digital Camera Black, etc. It is not only the portable type of cameras that have been digitalized, but this feature has now been made available in almost all kinds of cameras that come in other gadgets as well, like in mobile phones, vehicles, etc. These type of cameras have an optical system, archetypally using a lens that has a variable diaphragm that in turn helps to focus light on an image pickup device. And, unlike the film cameras, these cameras can preview the images on a screen at the very moment and even allows to store as well as delete images from memory. Kodak Digital Camera, which was launched in 1975, marked the beginning of a new era of revolutionary cameras; now it has been more than 35 years and this segment of cameras has seen a lot of upgrades and innovations. But, a true digital camera can only be attached to the Fujix DS-1P which was launched in 1989 and came with a resolution of 0.4MP followed by the Dycam Model 1 in 1990 with a resolution of 376 x 240 pixels at 0.09MP. With the beginning of 1997, the booming camera market witnessed another upgradation with the usage of 3.5 inch floppy disks and miniature CD-R discs for storing photos in the cameras with the launch of Sony Digital Mavica FD5 and Sony Mavica CD1000, respectively. Now, it was Canon’s turn to show off its potential and in 2000 the company redefined the concept of digital cameras, bringing out them in smaller sizes along with higher resolutions with the introduction of Canon PowerShot S100 Digital ELPH. And till the date, the improving technology can be witnessed with moving from Contax N Digital which was the first camera to come with a 35mm full frame CCD sensor to the present fully featured point and shoot digital cameras that are capable of shooting 3D photographs and video. While talking specifically about India, the company is not so old for the Indian market being incorporated in 1997 as the Canon India Pvt. Ltd. which is a fully owned subsidiary of Canon Singapore Pte. Ltd. From then on, the company has come a long way and now has its offices in more than 10 cities of India with an employee count of over 1000 people. The company offers more than 140 range of classy digital imaging products in the Indian market which include likes of digital copiers, digital cameras, digital camcorders, card printers, cable ID printers, etc. The company stepped into the retail segment with the launch of its exclusive brand retail store, called the 'Canon Image Square' and later in 2011 it inaugurated 50 such stores. In the same year, it was also ranked as one of the top 25 Best Employers in India by Aon Hewitt.

With the consumers hardly being able to find out time for researching, comparing prices and features, one can now at the comfort of home shop online Canon digital cameras available in India.

The lounges have a complete display of Canon’s wide range of products and exhibits more than 100 imaging products for consumers to just experience them without any obligation to buy.
